Barry G. Roderman Attorney
After nearly 40 years practicing law in South Florida, Barry Roderman has lived a life that most of us can only dream about. Conversations with a U.S. President. Dining with international royalty. Trying a case on national television to jury verdict. After all, he’s a prominent trial attorney; who else shares lengthy relationships with successful business leaders, top politicians, as well as persons charged with serious white-collar crimes.
But meet Barry today over a cup of coffee or on the 18th hole, and you’ll instantly be at ease. You feel comfortable with a man who is comfortable with himself; a man whose top priority has been raising well-adjusted children, for a time as a single dad with sole custody. Oh, and his second priority? To practice law with every ounce of energy, every nuance of human intuitiveness, fully equipped with every resource necessary to build a case and gain the innate trust of client, judge, and jury alike.
Even before high school, Barry knew he wanted to become a lawyer. Roots of this drive stemmed from his father’s relentless influence. A son of Russian immigrants. Barry epitomizes those things that make us proud about America. This is a guy whose heritage taught—no, demanded—that you work hard. You do better. You make a life for yourself; get a good education; and college? You go to college to learn, son. So Barry left his small country hometown with a few possessions, and an entire arsenal of old-world ethics and honor.
At Ohio State, he worked hard, was awarded the Firestone Cup by his fraternity (ZBT) for the most outstanding freshman, played hard—despite his father’s warnings— embraced life. Barry studied conscientiously, but his natural intelligence meant that high grades came easy. His affable smile and fraternity life gave him plenty of time for pretty girls and lively parties. Barry soon fell in love and married young. He was 20.
Then came a flurry—a hectic pace—now nearly a blur of bittersweet memories. Western Reserve Law School, passing the Ohio and Florida Bar Exams, President of the Young Republican Club, and an intense schedule as a new assistant public defender. Barry’s marriage ultimately resulted in divorce and he was left with the custody of his two young children. Determined to raise them well, after a few years, he withdrew from political life and focused on raising his family. Now, years later, Barry is remarried, a devoted father of four, and a grandfather.
